Try this little exercise of imagination with us, if you will. Visualize your perfect home and try to describe it. Is it an ample estate, surrounded by lush greenery? Or, on the contrary, is it a small and quaint traditional home that seamlessly blends into the landscape? Perhaps it’s none of the above, but a sleek condo in an urban landscape. Whatever your personal esthetics and style preferences, one element is usually present in all descriptions: a patch of greenery. When you live in the suburbs, that spells into a well maintained lawn.
A healthy, verdant lawn will never go out of style, no matter what certain ‘experts’ will try to teach you. Some have even gone as far as to claim they require too much effort for maintenance. Luckily, the advent of new, affordable technologies has now made great lawn care more affordable than ever. And we’re not talking the DIY kind that you do on a lazy weekend at home. If you want professional, top quality lawn care you can have access to it, too. It’s as simple you imagine it to be to improve the curb appeal of your home, with the help of the pros at Archer Services. In our long experience with our clients, both commercial and residential, here are the top 3 reasons to improve the way your lawn looks and how healthy it is.
Rest and relaxation
Feeling burned out, anxious or just generally stressed? There’s no need to consider therapy; instead, call in a team of lawn care technicians to improve the overall state of your lawn. Scientific studies have proved that a healthy green lawn can actually absorb stressful noises. At the same time, it has been shown that a community whose roads and driveways are bordered by trees have lower overall crime rates. Plus, if your doctor has advised you to do all you can to keep your blood pressure in check, we’re here to tell you that a landscape of greenery, trees, shrubs, and flowers can totally do this.
Deep, healthy breaths
You probably know from your environment science classes that greenery absorbs CO2 and can help reduce pollution. Here’s how it works: trees and plants absorb dust, airborne chemicals, and smoke. They can keep rainwater from collecting into dangerous pools and puddles. To boot, they also act as natural A/C systems as they help cool down the air heated by cement and asphalt.
Plan on selling your home at some point in the future? Then you will want to invest in a healthy green lawn. Real estate market research says a green, healthy lawn can boost your home’s resell worth by as much as 15 per cent! And even if you don’t want to sell any time soon, you can still benefit from lower cooling and heating costs, thanks to your healthy lawn.
